Pinday: Ham & Pineapple Fried Rice

This week's Pinday recipe was quick, easy, and delicious!  It stood out to me because Elias loves both ham and pineapple, so I thought this would be a great one for him...  But we all loved it!  I unfortunately didn't have enough ham when I was making it (DUH!), so I just sauteed some bite-sized pieces of chicken breasts, and those were delicious too.  Can't wait to try it again with HAM.  (Rolling eyes.)  The only other thing I did differently from the recipe below was that I used minute brown rice instead of white.

Pin here, original recipe here.
This is my Chicken & Pineapple Rice.  Still tasty!
Ham & Pineapple Fried Rice
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or crushed
  • vegetable oil
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce, plus extra to taste
  • 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained and reserve juice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1-2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • salt and pepper to taste
Cook the rice according to the package directions.
Cook the onion and garlic in oil  in a large skillet till soft.  Add the ham, 2 Tbs. soy sauce, 1 Tbs. pineapple juice.  Cook for several minutes till the ham is hot.  Pour the eggs into the skillet and cook, stirring frequently.  Add the peas and carrots and heat through.  Stir in the drained pineapple.  Add the cooked rice, stirring to combine.  Add soy sauce, pineapple juice, salt and pepper to taste.  I added about 2 Tbs. each of soy sauce and pineapple juice.
